Seek info on two Carrera 2's Bob Raucher owned in the '70's.

Hello all,
Bob owned two 356 Carrera 2's in the early to mid 1970's.
One was a yelow Coupe with a roll bar supposedly owned by racer Scooter Patrick but I cannot confirm this.
Anyone know the chassis number or history since then of this car? I remember riding in the back hitting my head on the roll bar numerous times.

More importantly he owned a '64 Coupe in white featured in the Oct. '78 Volkswagen magazine.
He told me story that possibly this sunroof car had the sunroof clip grafted onto this car. Do not have the chassis #.
Looking for confirmation on this story and any other history etc of this car since his ownership.
Also he mentioned that when the time came to sell this car, perhaps Peter and Cheryl Dunkel were interested however he knew them and could not sell to them without disclosing this roof clip knowing they would not want the car then.
MIss those cars...
Regards,
Steve

I remember seeing the White one at a few events but have no idea who bought it.
